    :wrench: .files, including ~/.macos — sensible hacker defaults for macOS

    Project mention: macOS Ventura is now available | | 2022-10-24

    I added a PR to fix rsync, mosh, and some other tools, since they will be broken out of the box.

    But it seems this project has fallen behind on PRs.

    If you would like to have this fix, you can do this after cloning the repo:

      git clone && cd dotfiles

  • vcsh

    config manager based on Git

    Project mention: GitHub Does Dotfiles | | 2022-08-28

    weirdly, nobody mentioned vcsh[1] yet. it's a git-based tool that gives all git goodies. I use it and a couple of bash micro scripts to pull/push the latest changes upon logging in/out into shell (again bash, but seeking for POSIX or fish-based version)

    Project mention: Syntax Error on nonexistent line 385 | | 2021-12-09

    Hi guys, I tried getting samoshkin / tmux-config , but after starting tmux, there is a syntax error on line 41, unbinding {, which I can escape by either \ or quotes. Though after this, there is another syntax error on the nonexistent line after 384 -> 385, which I find utterly weird and couldn't get it away no matter what I tried...I'm still new to tmux so maybe I oversaw something.
